The way the son speaks to his kids is appalling. He swears at them all the time... the younger kid looks about my DS1's age (5) and the older one probably 7 or 8. This morning I was out the back hanging out some washing, and I heard the boy whinging about something he wanted done. The dad yelled at him "if you want it done get off your f***ing arse and do it yourself!" That was the second F-bomb I heard for today, earlier on I heard him (I was inside my house and heard him) telling one of them to shut the F*** up. I always hear the kids whinging and whining and carrying on, they are pretty feral, but it's no bloody wonder if that's how their dad relates to them! I've heard it before, it's not just today.
I find it incredibly hard to listen to. Swearing per se doesn't particularly offend me, it just sounds so wrong when it's directed at young children, particularly by their father sad
